what tanner's up to at 6 months:
*27.5 inches tall (85%)
*16.301 lbs (30%)
*44.5 inches head circumference (75%)
*everything goes straight into his mouth
*we are 4 days into food...he still isn't so sure about it
*size 3 diapers and size 4 overnights at night
*wearing 6 month, 6-9 month and some 9 month clothes...he is just outgrowing them in length
*eats every 3 hours during the day-7, 10, 1, 4, 7 and 10 (give or take 30 minutes or an hour!)
*sleep-bedtime is between 6:30 and 7 and he wakes up between 6:30 and 7 most mornings (always super happy with a big smile for me!)-he has really started sleeping straight through-if he wakes up he usually just fusses in his crib for about 5 minutes before falling back asleep! but he goes several nights in a row without waking up so i know he can do it!
*naps...oh how i wish he loved them! lately he's been a cat napper snoozing just 30-45 minutes for his naps-an hour if i'm lucky. because they're so short, he's tired and ready for another nap after being up just 1.5-2 hours and he's still taking 3-4 naps a day. today he actually took a 2 HOUR nap!!! so i am hoping maybe he's decided an afternoon nap is a good idea and that we can look forward to long afternoon naps in our future!
*he loves being tossed in the air...huge smiles every time!
*he's pretty good at putting himself to sleep-we've got our routine down pat-turn on the sound machine and turn out the lights as we sing jesus loves me...9 times out of 10 there's no crying in his crib...or he just fusses until i'm out of the room-wahoo for this skill!!! makes nap time so much easier!
*he loves bath time and splashing in the tub
*he loves watching his puppy dogs and his praise baby dvds
*he's sleeping with a burp cloth...and i find him in his crib asleep with his right thumb in his mouth and holding onto a burp cloth...and laying on his right side a lot
*he can roll over although he doesn't really love to
*he's squirming all over the place-the child is never still...you put him on his play mat and he spins in circles. he spins in circles in his crib too...and if you put him on his tummy he squirms with his arms, legs and whole body!
*he is fascinated by different textures-he loves rubbing on the couch, on the chair in his room, and his favorite is scratching the paint off the wall by his changing table-yes he has left scratches in the paint with his nails next to his changing pad
*he can sit up by himself...but still topples over if you aren't sitting behind him or giving him something to hold on to
tanner, me and your daddy love you oh so much!!! happy half birthday!!!
